Overview

Why do bubbles escape from soda?

How can you clean up an oil slick?

What's the best environment for worms?

Why does milk curdle?

Explore the strange and sometimes slimy answers to these and other questions about astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science, and physics in Janice VanCleave's 202 Oozing, Bubbling, Dripping, and Bouncing Experiments. Try these fun-filled, hands-on projects at home or in the classroom. Drip liquid mud to show how craters form on the moon, use toothpaste to simulate a shield volcano, and make your own "bouncy blubber" with water, borax, and glue. Each experiment includes an illustration and safe, simple, step-by-step instructions.

This latest Janice VanCleave treasury, a companion to the enormously popular 200 Gooey, Slippery, Slimy, Weird, and Fun Experiments and 201 Awesome, Magical, Bizarre, and Incredible Experiments, brings together projects from her SCIENCE FOR EVERY KID and SPECTACULAR SCIENCE PROJECTS series — plus 40 all-new experiments that make science ooze, bubble, and drip with excitement.

Children Ages 8 -12
